Butterflies: May 2021
It was good to see Orange-tips on the Estate today, they’ve been few-and-far-between so far this year. Large White, Small White, Red Admiral, and Painted Lady were also around.
The change to southerly winds has brought with it a little influx of Painted Lady’s. There were at least nine on Worth marshes today and some spread around the Estate yesterday. There were also some Orange-tips around the Great Wood on Worth today, a few Red Admirals, Peacocks, and a Speckled Wood.
The weather is still unseasonably cold. A Red Admiral was at the Observatory and a Brimstone on the Green Wall.
